Hi,

I just saw a cute little sparrow type bird , but smaller, with a bright yellow patch on the top of it's head. Do you have any ideas ? I've looked up warblers and sparrows ... and haven't seen it .

Thank you !

Gold crowned kinglet maybe? When I am trying to identify birds I also look at feet and beak color. Good luck! Let us know what you find out!

goldcrest ?

Maybe it's a goldcrest or a firecrest - like wrens but with red or orange patch on top of the head.
